    Im clueless when it comes to this but the android manifest xml from framework-res.apk contains this specific reference to carrier iq in it and points to the package.

    <service
    android:label="IQ Agent Service"
    android:name="com.carrieriq.iqagent.service.IQService"
    android:enabled="true"
    android:exported="true"
    android:process="android.iqd"
    >
    <intent-filter
    >
    <action
    android:name="com.carrieriq.iqagent.service.IQService"
    >
    </action>
    </intent-filter>
    </service>
    <receiver
    android:label="IQ Agent Autostarter"
    android:name="com.carrieriq.iqagent.service.receivers.BootCompletedReceiver"
    android:enabled="true"
    android:exported="true"
    android:process="android.iqd"
    >
    <intent-filter
    >
    <action
    android:name="com.sprint.android.SPRINTEXTENSION_STARTED"
    >
    </action>
    </intent-filter>
    </receiver>
    <activity
    android:label="IQ Agent Settings"
    android:name="com.carrieriq.iqagent.service.ui.DebugSettings"
    android:enabled="true"
    android:exported="false"
    android:process="android.iqd"
    >
    </activity>
    <activity
    android:label="IQ Agent Message Dialog"
    android:name="com.carrieriq.iqagent.service.ui.ShowMessage"
    android:enabled="true"
    android:exported="false"
    android:process="android.iqd"
    android:stateNotNeeded="true"
    android:excludeFromRecents="true"
    >
    </activity>

    maybe someone who actually knows what they are doing can make some use of this.

    Ya that kinda cracked me up to, seen a few scripts that will auto disable this but apparently sprint can remotely restart it. So kinda defeats the purpose, but the powers that be on here im sure already have it in the works.

    Sprint on Friday Dec 16th 2011 confirmed that it has disabled Carrier IQ on its servers and it is no longer actively using the software to collect diagnostic data.

    At this point I think they could care less about this phone in all honesty, in fact nobody seems to care about this phone. Samsung doesn't care about the screen issues, sprint/boost haven't said anything about carrier IQ on this device, and we are lucky to have a couple people even working on dev work for it.

    Just FYI the new 2.3.6 update rolling around now fixes the screen problem and does remove CIQ. YEAH! About time Samsung. WOOT WOOT!

    Ya but with all the bugs already and i'm sure we will find more I already went back to my backup, bob fixed the screen issues with his kernel so I'm happy to stay with 2.3.4 until samsung decides to actually test updates before rolling them out lol. The only thing i stand to gain is removing ciq by upgrading, I stand to lose, wifi, possibly gps, and all my customizations so it doesn't seem worth it to me. I tried the update and had nothing but problems. I'm happy with how my phone is working now, again thanks to bob!
